I was out in Balerno this afternoon, helping to set up an art exhibition. This will be on for the next few days. It is raising the money for the Mercy Corps' work in Japan.

The exhibition is taking place in
Balerno Parish Church Hall, Johnsburn Road, Balerno EH14 7DN
It will be on fromThursday 9 June to Saturday 11 June (Open 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. daily)
There are lots of Pictures, plus Photographs, Glassworks and Ceramics.
I have some pictures on display. The other artists include Jacqueline Watt, Elizabeth Cull, Roger Cull, Chris Edgar, Mhairi MacDonald-Greig, James Denison Pender, Junko Eager, Jacky Gooder and Joy Alstead.
This charcoal drawing of mine is on display.

The entry fee of £1 plus 50% of works sold will be donated to the Mercy Corps who are helping to provide relief and recovery to survivors of the recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan.

I'm hoping there's a lot of interest and that we sell a few pictures to raise funds. Fingers crossed.....
